What to do with my 2 new pumpkins?!

DKS1 | Oct 10, 2007 09:19 AM

We went out and got two beautiful (but big!) pumpkins this weekend... and they've been sitting on my counter since!

I'm a little intimidated. How do I cut into one? Do I just use a chef's knife, or do I have to go out and buy a special pumpkin-carving knife?

Also, how do I roast the seeds? And what part of the inside of the pumpkin do I actually use to eat and bake with?

As you can tell, I'm quite new at this whole pumpkin thing. Thanks in advance!
